The Bear Necessities

Enjoy February

I hope today finds you enjoying recess!! The weather is great, so get those little ones out to run, run, run!!

This is nice time to reach out to parents, it has been a bit of time since you have talked to them one on one. If you have a positive to share or a concern, this is the time of year to do it. We've got a long time before Parent Teacher Conferences.

Email from Special Services Coming Today

I wanted to make you aware that special services has an email coming this afternoon that references an all day Professional Development Day on March 4th. This all day event has some great parts to it, but for GBEEC staff that work at this location, you MUST attend ASIRT in the afternoon and can then attend a session in the PM. The program coordinators will be talking about compliance. This is for special education teachers, Head Start and Title, we will let you know about your attendance soon.


  • Regarding time off requests, classified staff will still need to request the entire time off. If they request 4 hours and they return after 4 hours plus some, they will need to modify this time off request or work the extra time before the end of the week.

  • Mail procedure instructions and mail supplies are in the File Room.

  • Please notify the office if a Title student is now eligible to receive Special Education services. Please place the Title cumulative file in the brown file
